Alluvial


Publication date 2011-06-11
The 'Alluvial' EP is inspired by geology, human prehistory and the idea of 'deep time'- how incredibly long it has taken the planet to evolve.
I have therefore tried to express a sense of scale, which is in contrast to the more personal landscapes that inspire much of Northcape's material.
The result is this EP which contains four slow-building but still melodic tracks with a more ambient feel.
Some of the tracks are inspired by the idea of human habitation in the distant past, and others by geological space - the release image is pretty much a landscape I was imagining when I was writing the tracks.
Although they are different from my normal approach to melodic electronica (which continues to develop), I think these tracks still keep a recognizable Northcape sound.

I love the intention behind this work. It touches the soul and stimulates the imagination. It's up their with Steve Roach! Beautiful Work!

Slow, yet well developed electronic music tracks which keep listeners engaged with melody much more so than most other people I've heard who attempt to do ambient or environmental music. For what it is its good stuff but not the best for your active stuff like perhaps an aerobics routine. At least Northcape did not drone us out here into boredom with long droned out sounds or super long sustaining synth pads.
